Scripture for Sunday, January 15 (1/15)

The scripture for today, January 15, is Galatians 1:15f as found in the New Testament of the Bible:

PAUL COVER-KINDLE-“But when God, who set me apart from birth and called me by his grace, was pleased to reveal his Son in me so that I might preach him among the Gentiles….”

Isn’t this amazing! God knows before you are born what you will be doing for him later in life. He does not force you to do so, for we have free will. God knew Paul’s future ~ that he would become a Christian. So he set him apart to preach among the Gentiles (non-Jews).

God knows ahead of time whether you are willing to obey what he tells you to do in his Bible and not what other people tell you to do. If you are willing, then he has work set aside for you.

You may not think your life has been very exciting. You may be waiting for God to give you a big important job to do for him. But the truth is, you ~ in your seemingly mundane life ~ may already be doing what God set aside for you to do.

Never underestimate yourself and what God can accomplish through you by his grace.

00-COVER-KINDLEBetty (Mrs. JC) Choate: When I started “The Samaritan’s Quest” at the Harding Lectures, I picked it up again every time I had a few minutes and just lived the “bringing to life” of Jesus’ parables!

Katheryn did such excellent research into geography, history, culture, names, and the biblical account in her development of the Samaritan’s life. She is an amazing writer and Bible scholar, and I do heartily recommend this book. When you read it, I am very sure you will look for opportunities to tell others about it.

Now I’m waiting for her next treasure, magnifying historically and culturally the life and work and sufferings of the apostle Paul.
